Olivares was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

Olivares played a fairly considerable role on the big-league club in 2020, racking up 101 plate appearances across 31 games while hitting .240/.267/.375. However, after the team acquired Andrew Benintendi, Michael Taylor and Jarrod Dyson this offseason, his chances to earn regular playing time shrunk. Despite the demotion, Olivares should have the chance to return to the majors to contribute at various times throughout the campaign.
